Some of the other trending games in May were Ubisoft‘s Hungry Shark World, Zynga’s Wizard of Oz: Magic Match and Glu’s Britney Spears: American Dream, which were the third-, sixth- and seventh-fastest-growing apps in the U.S. last month, respectively. According to SimilarWeb, Hungry Shark World is now installed on 0.64 percent of Android devices in the U.S., and the game had an average session length of 20 minutes in May.
